Peter, while I respect the community's right to discuss in good faith anything constructive pertaining to Wikitravel, I think you can see that the discussion at hand is neither constructive nor in good faith. By discussing a fork -- the results of which, as all concerned know very well, would be highly destructive to the community here -- the discussion itself serves the exact same purpose as allowing its ends to be touted here. Which you and LtPowers have already objected to. It is a backdoor method to attempt to subvert the purpose of this community, and I am removing it again. If you wish to discuss this with me here or offline I am open to it. If you need me to explain further my reasoning, I can. But I think you can see it plain as day.--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] 17:27, 2 July 2012 (EDT)

Climate data

Hi, Peter... I noticed you reverted a change to the D.C. climate data... the same IP user changed NYC, WDW, and NOLA as well; should they be reverted as well? LtPowers 22:28, 10 January 2012 (EST)

Yes, unless they can explain where they are getting their figures, and why we should use them over the NOAA figures. --Peter Talk 22:01, 11 January 2012 (EST)
I didn't see this discussion and actually reverted the anonymous user's changes earlier after leaving a note on User talk:67.169.134.89. -- Ryan • (talk) • 22:20, 11 January 2012 (EST)

RE: Maryland articles

Hey Peter, thank you for the compliments! I've been pretty busy lately but it would be awesome to help out getting an article up to Destination of the Month status, so I'll see what I can do. :) travelguy101 19:52, 6 February 2012 (EST)


SQL dump access for Evopedia 2012 edition

Peter, I am working with the Evopedia project http://evopedia.info/ to process the yearly wikipedia dumps. If you could provide us with a recent SQL database dump for each language you choose to share we could include wikitravel in our available databases useful to travelers relying on their mobile device as an offline Hitchikers Guide to World. This would of course also be good exposure for Internet Brands. thanks David you can reach me at dj hat personaltelco.net

Very unfortunately, there is no SQL dump available, and our hosting company has refused to provide one (or even discuss it). I will contact you if/when one becomes available. --Peter Talk 10:46, 12 February 2012 (EST)

Bywater Photo

The art you reference is making fun of the Blue Dog art by George Rodrigue. It's a run over Blue Dog meant to poke fun at this artist who made a lot of money selling his Blue Dog folk art. This particular graffiti artist has posted the run over image of the blue dog in many locations. It has nothing to do with being a cat neighborhood. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 98.164.83.118 (talkcontribs)

Cool—I definitely didn't know what it was about. But my caption was fully tongue in cheek! --Peter Talk 17:58, 10 March 2012 (EST)

Help with a districts map

Hi Peter. Nice work on cleaning up Wikitravel:How to draw a map. I thought I'd have a go at districtifying Dhaka, after you'd updated the instructions. I did manage fairly well to transform the OSM map to our standards. But it's still a little messy, mostly because the OSM mapping of Dhaka was quite disorganised. I'm having some issues applying the coloured district shading over the top of the map; I can't get a good level of precision and it always looks wonky or overlapped. Did you want to have a go if you get a chance? I've got another PNG which is a rough outline of where the district borders should be. Let me know if you've got time, and I can post the SVG-in-progress. If not, no problems at all. Thanks, JamesA >talk 08:13, 24 May 2012 (EDT)

Thanks Peter, and no problem about the delay. I'll upload the files somewhere when you're ready. I continually saved the map as I progressed, but will give you the most recent one to work with. JamesA >talk 02:31, 3 June 2012 (EDT)

Edit window resizing

Short edit window

Has anyone else had their edit window become tiny lately? --Peter Talk 18:41, 21 October 2011 (EDT)

It's the same issue as #Preferences Reseting?. Go to User Preferences → Editing and make sure that your "Rows" and "Columns" are something like "25" and "80", respectively. Has happened to me twice in the past three days. -- Ryan • (talk) • 18:58, 21 October 2011 (EDT)
But then it will go back to normal without my going into my preferences. Strange. -Peter Talk 19:23, 21 October 2011 (EDT)
Only happens sometimes for me, too... I'm trying to detect a pattern. LtPowers 21:39, 21 October 2011 (EDT)
It has happened many times lately with me. When that happens, the changes list at Recent changes also becomes completely empty. Not sure what it is, but seems like a connection problem? --globe-trotter 04:59, 22 October 2011 (EDT)
This was reported to tech last week. All of this is a result of random preferences resetting -- you can work around it by manually selecting Edit Preferences in your profile. It has been affecting me for the last 2 weeks as well.--IBobi 21:00, 24 October 2011 (EDT)
I still have this problem. Also, the preview function does not work. The Dutch Wikitravel works fine, so I hope this issue could be fixed shortly. --Globe-trotter 00:34, 14 November 2011 (EST)

The above message was swept in from the pub. JamesA >talk 04:14, 4 June 2012 (EDT)

Only new tabs load?

Another bizarre problem: often trying to open a link will result in a never-ending page load (no content accessed). I also have this problem when hitting go on special:recentchanges. But if I open the link in a new window/tab, then it loads promptly. Firefox. And no idea what's going on. Anyone else? --Peter Talk 18:47, 21 October 2011 (EDT)

Man, this site works way better in Accra then in D.C. ... --Peter Talk 02:22, 29 November 2011 (EST)

Myer Centre

You know that I was gassed there three times, right?

Didn't realize you were on Wikitravel in those days - thanks for the trip down memory lane :) -- Ryan • (talk) • 00:11, 12 June 2012 (EDT)

I wasn't on wikiatravel, i also got gassed. --14:09, 12 June 2012 (EDT)~

Fork discussion

Peter, while I respect the community's right to discuss in good faith anything constructive pertaining to Wikitravel, I think you can see that the discussion at hand is neither constructive nor in good faith. By discussing a fork -- the results of which, as all concerned know very well, would be highly destructive to the community here -- the discussion itself serves the exact same purpose as allowing its ends to be touted here. Which you and LtPowers have already objected to. It is a backdoor method to attempt to subvert the purpose of this community, and I am removing it again. If you wish to discuss this with me here or offline I am open to it. If you need me to explain further my reasoning, I can. But I think you can see it plain as day.--IBobi 17:27, 2 July 2012 (EDT)
